The Liberty Ship JOHN W. BROWN
"Celebrating 75 years of Service"

Built in Baltimore and launched from
Bethlehem-Fairfield on Labor Day September 7, 1942

What is the S.S. JOHN W. BROWN?

Welcome aboard S.S. JOHN W. BROWN, one of only two remaining, fully operational Liberty ships that participated in World War II. This wonderful piece of history provides an educational and historical opportunity for the public to experience 1944 all over again, without the dangers of being sunk by a submarine or a torpedo bomber!

Through the efforts of talented and dedicated volunteers, coupled with the generous financial support of members and friends, S.S. JOHN W. BROWN continues to educate by operating as a historic museum ship, furnishing visitors with a unique opportunity to experience "living history" of the World War II merchant marine.

2017 is our 75th Anniversary; pretty amazing for a ship that was built quickly and was considered 'paid for' if it made one voyage (across the ocean and back).   To read more about the history of the ship, click here or the ABOUT tab above.
